I often find myself torn on where I fall in the crunchy spectrum. I quit using shampoo, I make my own body scrubs and I use homemade after-sun spray EVERY TIME we’ve been in the sun. But I still buy dish soap and laundry detergent (since my homemade version wasn’t actually cleaning my clothes!). IClick to Continue »
When we lived in California, I didn’t have to worry about getting to much sun. Most days were cool and overcast and you’d freeze in a bathing suit anyway. Now that we live in Georgia and temperatures make it hot enough to swim 7 months out of the year, dealing with the sun is aClick to Continue »

Before I quit couponing, I used to stock up on make-up remover pads by Almay. They were pricey, but I have sensitive skin and they were the only kind that didn’t make my skin break out.
